According to the Health day News a long-term symptom of covid-19 is rarely seen in any patient who was not hospitalized after the infection of the coronavirus, but these patients do visit doctors frequently for the checkup. A new study for six months found that patients who were earlier infected by the coronavirus and who were not hospitalized had an increased chance of difficulties in breathing and blood clots.
Covid-19 Infection Can Show Symptoms For A Longer Duration
They are more prone to have difficulty in breathing for a long time after they have recovered as compared to patients who were not infected. They also needed medicines for dealing with breathing problems.
According to research which was published in the journals claimed that the patients who have recovered after getting infected by the coronavirus and those who were not hospitalized visited doctors, health clinics, or their personal doctors for the treatment of any sort of breathing difficulties that come across more than those who were never infected by the coronavirus.
The new study which was published on May 10 in The Lancet Infectious Diseases journal claimed that the researchers found data that around 9 thousand people who were tested positive in the SARS-CoV-2 virus test and analysis to more than 80 thousand people who never had covid-19 or never showed any signs of infection. This data is taken after a survey in this area.
Author Anton Pottegard who is a clinical pharmacist in southern Denmark University said that there are a greater number of people with infection of the virus who were never hospitalized. She said that there are very rare chances of showing or coming back of the symptoms of the covid-19 on the patients who were never hospitalized.
The risk of coming back is negligible but not zero so, the patients should be aware of their surroundings and take precautions. The new study provides evidence of small long-term symptoms of covid-19 on people who were never hospitalized but, later after their test was negative, they required certain medications and treatment because of the symptoms shoeing again in the body of the patient.
This resulted in the use of the primary health units more often. The study also added that the health care units and the system dealing with the treatment of the coronavirus should be well aware of the facts and should be ready for a long battle because in no time the symptoms may occur in the body and the body would surely require medication and treatment.
In comparison to the people who never had covid-19 and the people who had covid-19 and were not hospitalized took medications after they were tested negative due to certain difficulties in breathing and had a migraine.
According to the latest data, 1.8 percent of increment was seen in the intake of medicine for breathing difficulties and 0.4 percent rise for migraine issues. People visited the hospitals or local clinics 20 percent more as usual and general practicians saw an increment of 10 percent visits.
